whimsical wednesdays challenge #37 on the edge

happy wednesday :) did ya miss me last week ;) hope everyone had a wonderful christmas and the new year brings only good things to us all. 
this week over at WW our challenge is to make a card/project that includes a border.  make sure you head on over and see what the rest of the fab dt have created this week. wow wow knock your socks off stuff as always :)

this week our sponsor is cropstop who are generously donating an eksuccess punch called doily petals.  how cool is this! i HAVE to get this ,how about you?

im also entering this over at the pink elephant whos challenge this week is anything goes.

 i made a birthday card for someone special.
i used a memory box stamp for the grapevine wreath. adding prima flowers and viva decor pearl pen crinkly ribbon and a paper doily. i inked up a bit with colorbox fluid chalk.
 the sentiment is from stephs set everyday sentimentals . you can see and  purchase this set plus others ~>here<~
 i added some butterflies using a MS punch.
for my border i used a ek success scallop punch.
 the inside sentiment is also from the  everyday sentiments set. for some reason the word miles looks a bit off kilter im looking at the card right now in the real  i SWEAR it is not. it must just be the angle i took the pic.
thanks so much for hanging out with me , i hope you like my sweet card  and that ive inspired you to come play along with us.if i havent the rest of the dt will so dont forget to stop on by WW . steph always sets up some fun challenges :) and again we have a great sponsor in cropstop with that awesome punch.   have a great rest of day :) xxxshelly

Oooh, this card is just bursting with so many touches of beauty! (Which you always do.) The grapevine atop a lacy doily is stunning. Plus, the flowers, pearly accents, and sweet ribbon... so many gorgeous layers. The butterflies and papers are lovely, too. A special card for a special person! Marvelous work as always, Shelly!

Hugs and blessings! :o)
